Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Grand Canyon West Rim Day Trip by Coach, Helicopter and Boat with Optional Skywalk. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Mixing bus visit, helicopter, and boat trips in one tour was a good idea.
We added sky-walk to the trip and enjoyed about 10 hours of fun and beautiful scenaries.
What a fantastic day we all had. We had a party of 6 and had an early start 6.10am but what a day. We had Thomas the coach driver who was amazing though out the whole trip with his information about each area to his funny wit and jokes all through periods of the journey. The helicopter ride was awesome. a first of all of us to the skywalk. Our photographs at the Skywalk did not turn out via the computer link which was extremely disappointing but that was noting to do with this tour. It would have been nice to have something to say we were on the Skywalk as you are not allowed cameras on the glass walkway. we have nothing to show that we were walking on glass:( . Would recommend this trip to anyone great value although an early start but Thomas got us back safely and dropped us off at our hotels on the way back. 10/10.
An excellent tour. Highly recommended. Tour guide and driver were excellent. Thank you
Fantastic value, and such a full day. The only thing I would advise, dont necessarily do the skywalk after the helicopter as all the adrenalin and excitement has been used, and you won't get the same buzz, but still brilliant.
Excellent tour.Highly recommend it. Our bus driver,Thomas, was great and very informative. The Helicopter ride and boat ride were perfectly timed so we never waited. The trip moved along so smoothly. Really enjoyed seeing the Canyon from many different views. Colors were constantly changing. The skywalk was awesome as well. Will do this trip again!
Best trip to the Canyon anyone can have! It's well worth the extra money to do the helicopter and boat trip. Although it was a long day, it was definitely worth it.... Our driver/guide was excellent and full of local knowledge. Would definitely recommend it.
We had an excellent time from the time the bus picked us up at our hotel at 5:55 a.m. until they dropped us off at our hotel at 6:30 p.m. The bus trip, the helicopter ride, the grand canyon boat ride and the walk over the Sky Walk was something we will never forget!! We took this trip on March 10 and I believe it was the best time of the year to take this trip. Not too chilly and not too hot. I would recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys an adventure that takes the entire day.
This was such an amazing experience for my husband and I. We had a fabulous time from beginning to end.
This was a slick and highly polished operation from the hotel pick up to being dropped off again at night. Our bus driver for the day Dwayne was outstanding and so much fun! I hate coach journey's but would have happily done a 24 hour one if he was driving. The Canyon was very stunning and a definite must see. All in all a very enjoyable day out. My only suggestion to the company would be that there was not quite enough time at the venue to see it all properly and becuase I took a Helicopter add on that used up nearly half the alloted time and I was left rushing my skywalk experience and lunch.
My first view of the grand canyon was flying over the edge in a helicopter. It was breathtaking. The coach driver, Dwain, kept us all entertained during the fairly long 3 hour journey. We didn't do the optional sky walk and didn't miss it. The Grand Canyon is not to be missed and we would do the trip again. Fabulous day out.
We could not have been more pleased with our West Rim Tour. The helicopter and boat ride made it perfect. Because of time limit, we skipped the first stop but made the other three. My husband did not get too close to the edge but I enjoyed the view quite close up. The meal at stop 4 was delicious and everyone was so courteous. We really enjoyed our bus driver - tour guide.
Absolutely great day and the helicopter ride made it. Cruising on the Colarado River with the canyon on both sides was amazing. Our only fault we could find was that there wasn't enough time in the schedule to do everything. We didn't get to go to the Indian Ranch and have lunch, as it was 1.30 pm by the time we finished the helicopter and boat (because we had a 45 minute wait before we could get a helicopter). we then only had till 3 pm to catch the shuttle bus to Eagle Point do the Skywalk and go to Guana Point and back to catch our bus back to Las Vegas. And this was in the quiet season. In the tourist season we believe to do all this on the tour would be impossible. However, what we did was amazing and we are very happy.
This was undoubtedly the best tour we have been on. What a thrill when the helicopter went over the edge of the canyon with 4000 feet below you in the blink of an eye. Excellent
